Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

The Ivywild School

Ivywild Elementary School opened its doors in 1916 and served the Ivywild neighborhood until 2009. Obviously it's a big, beautiful and historic old building, so when the plan of converting it into a multi-use space after its closure was put into action, it was an all around win. Now the Ivywild School is a very popular gathering place, housing the Bristol Brewery, a coffee bar, a bakery, a restaurant, a performance space, shops, and even office space. I love the Ivywild neighborhood but it's a little out of my orbit (I tend to hang out downtown, as you know, and Ivywild is in the part of town generally known as the Broadmoor area), so I must confess that I never went there until two weekends ago! I was so intrigued, I went back again on Sunday to take these pictures. I really like what they've done with the place! There is another decommissioned old school very near my studio, and I'm excited that it's undergoing a similar transformation. I can't wait for it to open.
My cappuccino. The "Principal's Office" is a great place to just sit and enjoy a coffee.
There's a boulangerie/patisserie in the main hallway.
There are also a couple of cute shops. I'll have to check these out the next time I'm there.
